OUT NOW: Fraktus: Affe sucht Liebe - The Remixes

FRAKTUS!! Consisting of Dickie Schubert, Bernd Wand and Torsten Bage, the German trio Fraktus is regarded as the pioneer of Techno music in general and the German techno wave in particular. Alongside contemporaries Kraftwerk they have been the inspiration for many well-known artists such as Yello, Westbam, Trio, Blixa Bargeld or Daft Punk. Their rise to fame in the eighties tragically came to an end after the venue they've been playing burned down to the ground and destroyed all of their selfmade unique equipment. They never got over the shock and dissolved the band.

After 30 years of silence famous music producer Roger Dettner gathered the old bandmembers and convinced them to reunite Fraktus. They teamed up with film director Lars Jessen whose spectacular documentary "Fraktus - Das letzte Kapitel der Musikgeschichte" (Fraktus - The last Chapter of Music History) is already released. At the same time Fraktus' impressive comeback album "Millennium Edition" is released on Staatsakt. The standout track from the album certainly is "Affe sucht Liebe". It goes "Affe sucht Liebe, Affe sucht Halt, Affe sucht Wärme, sonst wird Affe kalt" [Monkey is looking for love, Monkey is looking for ground, Monkey is looking for warmth, otherwise Monkey's getting cold].

The song's orginal version went already high into the charts 30 years ago and we are glad to release the fresh club-remixes on hafendisko very very soon. The package will contain brilliant remixes by the wonderful Cologne-based Truffle Shuffle and Hamburg artists Deo & Z-Man and Remute...
